2017 Sailing Season

The Schooner American Eagle offers a good mix of three-, four- and six-night cruises with a couple longer ones.  If you’re looking for something unique during the 2017 sailing season, consider joining us for 10 days in July to explore the Maine coastline beyond Acadia National Park to the Canadian border. A perennial favorite is the 6-day trip over Labor Day to sail to Massachusetts for the Gloucester Schooner Festival.

5% discount for those having sailed with us before. Sign up now, we’ll hold your cabin, just send in your deposit by January 15, 2017

Every trip is available for charter until the first person reserves

Call 1-800-648-4544 for availability.
